The call for proposals for the 2015 GBIF Young Researchers Awards is now open. The Young Researchers Awards intend to foster innovative research and discovery in biodiversity informatics. Two awards of €4,000 are available to one master's student and one doctoral student.
The Ebbe Nielsen Prize was established by the GBIF Governing Board to honour the memory of Dr Ebbe Schmidt Nielsen, who was an inspirational leader in the fields of biosystematics and biodiversity informatics.
The prize is awarded annually to a promising researcher, usually in the early stages of his/her career, who is combining biosystematics and biodiversity informatics research in an exciting and novel way.
The nominations are submitted by GBIF Participants to the GBIF Science Committee, which selects the recipient. The prize is awarded each year at the GBIF Governing Board meeting. It consists of €30,000, to be used by the recipient to further his/her research.
